will hear from a constitutional law professor adam winkler. from the johns hopkins school of public health in baltimore. this is about 20 minutes. >> he is certainly one of the great emerging voices, insightful and influential of the nature of the meaning of the second amendment in the wake of the supreme court's decision, so thank you for joining me in this effort. i want to thank the organizers, everyone from the president down to staff that has organized a terrific and hopefully impact full conference. i am not going to talk with any power. as a law professor i do not like the focus on anyone but me. i am here to talk about the amendment to the constitution and what it says about major reform proposals being considered in the wake of the new town massacre. as you probably know, the second amendment provides a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. it is almost as if james madison just discovered this wonderful new thing, the comma, and wanted to put it in there as many times as possible, and is
will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut, a town that is only about nine miles from the new york-connecticut border, tonight the state of new york has become the first state in the country since that tragedy to reform its gun laws. and it reformed its gun laws dramatically. as of tonight, as of tonight, new york has just enacted the toughest set of gun laws in the country. the state senate, which is run by a republican-dominated coalition passed the measure last night by a vote of 43-18. that was last night. then it was this afternoon the heavily democratic assembly voting. the margin in the assembly was 144-43. and then tonight, less than an hour after it won final passage in the legislature, governor andrew cuomo signed it, signed it into law. parts of it ta
laws. some house republicans don't sound thrilled of the exercise of executive power designed only to protect american lives. kansas congressman him huelskamp told msnbc -- >> it is troubling to me the president says if congress doesn't do what i want, i'm going to issue an executive order. people in kansas aren't look for new laws out of washington. >> john: that's a more moderate and sane g.o.p. response. the full crazy came from texas congressman steve stockman who said he will try to defund the white house or file articles of impeachment if that's what it takes to stop the president from passing laws designed only to save american lives. which is not to say that congressman stockman doesn't have supporters. no former reagan attorney ed meese said stockman would have a good case for impeachment of high crimes and misteds against this president. we're only telling you what ed meese thinks about this because smirnoff and irrelevant '80s figures weren't available for comment. what would the president like congress to pass? jay carney was a lot more clear on that. >> there are speci
law. what it is going to do is submit gun owners to fingerprinting. it will ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, require gun safety courses and background checks. he goes further than his democratic governor, and anthony o'donnell tells "outfront" the reality is martin o'malley is trying to get to the left of cuomo in new york because he wants to run for president in 2016. eric, former obama administration official rosa brooks, and our legal analyst, paul cowin. martin o'malley not the only politician who has 2016 ambitions who is stepping out in the gun law fray. louisiana republican governor bobby jindal wants a law to keep guns away from the mentally ill. how much is this push really about positioning for 2016? >> i think some of it definitely is about 2016. some of it is they want to be doing something. they hope if they're seen as doing something now, by 2016, the particulars may be forgotten, particularly by gun rights advocates and a lot in the democratic party as well as the republican party. they'll look at them as doing something. i don't think we should do
that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records who want to die. these are adult facts that don't intrude on the childish world of white house policy making. he notes adam lanza in newtown, his own mother of course passed a background check. >> here's the bottom line. these laws are not perfect. and you'll always find certain exceptions. but they make a huge difference. every major person who has studied the brady law, which is the most significant gun safety law we've passed in the last 20 years has said it has reduced gun violence dramatically.
governors are moving fast to change gun laws in their states, will support on the state level help or hurt the white house push here in washington? promises promises. today a deep dive into a president obama pitched as candidate obama and what he did from that first inaugural speech to his announcement speech and, of course, when he accepted that nomination. we are looking back at all of it. it is very interesting and you should take look. good morning from washington. tuesday, january 15, 2013. this is the -- little bit late, "daly run-down." i'm chuck todd. first reads of the morning. with washington once again careening towards a fiscal crisis, this one now about debt and spending. the president used his last news conference of his first term to make it clear he intends to stand firm and refuse to negotiate over the debt limit. >> republicans in congress have would choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. they will not collect ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the p
, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second ame
why. martha: new reaction to president obama's sweeping plan to overhaul gun laws. the nra is calling this, quote, the fight of the century. that group's president will be with us in "america's newsroom." that is coming up. some republican lawmakers are gearing up for the defense of the second amendment. >> there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he is writing new law. that can not happen. we struck down once, the court struck clinton down for trying this and i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing. we're going to make sure that it doesn't happen. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. my i feel so much younger.tly changed my life - my husband has his confidence back. and he can enjoy the laughter of our grandkids again. i can have fun with my friends again. feeling i
has studied the brady law, which is the most significant gun safety law we've passed in the last 20 years has said it has reduced gun violence dramatically. law enforcement is totally for the brady law. and the idea that felons or people who are mentally infirm or people who are spousal abusers should be allowed to buy guns, most everyone agrees on that, even -- >> but there's no overwhelming evidence of the assault weapons ban dramatically reduced this incident of violence, nor was there an uptick in this sort of violence once the law lapsed. >> during the 10 years that the assault weapons ban was in effect, the use of those weapons in crime went down a significant percent an. >> senator, is there any gun regulation, any restriction of gun rights, you could accept or vote for? >> sure. i think the fact that we have background checks with people buy firearms and we prevent felons and those with serious mental illness acquiring them, those make perfect sense. >> so a background check is something you could support? >> well, the background checks are in place when a licensed firearms
tasks, equal pay for equal work, i thought we got that done with that, you know, ledbetter law. you know, gay marriage which he was against in his first campaign and during three of the first four years in office. voting protections, you know, i think this was a veiled attack at voter i.d. laws. and immigration reform which he had a chance to do when he had complete control of the congress in 2009 and 2010 and didn't bother to do and gun control. are all of these things only going to pass with democrat votes in 2013 and 2014? no. he's got to get the kind of gun control legislation you're talking about or is the congress going to validate gay marriage? i don't think so. he couldn't get climate control when he had complete control of congress, do we now think it's going to be passed with republicans in control of the house? no. and as a result, i think this was completely political and not focused on the big challenge the country faces which is getting our economy going. >> sean: i like what our colleague charles krauthammer said it's an ode to big government and you pointed out in the lis
over a long period of time happen at once. president obama sat down, page and protection act into law and health care reform was done. when we look at deficit reduction, it's four or five deals, each one in endless, horrible slog through the d.c. marshes. in the second term the two things we are going to see, it does not look like we are going to see much more on jobs. the white house is not fighting hard. they have not made infrastructure a condition of moving forward. we got $600 billion in the fiscal cliff. republicans are going to make a decision to include revenues or whether or not they are going to make a decision that is better to do no more reduction over the second term. if it is what it takes to keep the president from getting more tax revenues. >> let me ask this. what i hear you saying is deficit reduction. it seems as though we have a president who is legitimately a deficit hawk. he believes the deficit is a problem and deficit reduction is a priority. when you look at the approval rate of americans on handling of the economy, it's split half and half with support for th
laws. he penned an op ed in the connecticut post today, and he is planning to hit the road to sell his plan with speeches around the country. as the white house tries to engage the public, senate majority leader harry reid will try to engage the senate. in a statement yesterday reid wrote "i am committed to insuring that the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year." the success of the president's proposals, especially a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, rests largely in the hands of the upper chamber. dan gross, the president of the brady campaign, says nothing will happen in either chamber without public pressure. >> there's an extraordinary disconnect between what the american public wants, including gun owners and nra members, and what our elected officials are doing about it. it is going to be up to us, the american public, to close that disconnect. >> republicans seem intent on digging in their heels while president obama is back to the strategy of enlisting the american people to m
-- if the law is repealed, should there be some protection there or duty of care to the unborn in any new legislation that would repeal the current law? >> the legal team will address you tomorrow but in relation to protection of the unborn, when a woman dies before her baby is viable, the baby will die, too. the context of equal rights in that case becomes a contradiction. i believe we need to look at taking out the criminality surrounding termination of pregnancy in this country particular when it pertains to saving a woman's life. this is not about legislating for broad termination of pregnancy. this is about protecting doctors to save women's lives. >> as we have reached the end of -- the end of the session, may i ask if anyone is to make a final statement. ok, -- salary -- -- sorry, i want to thank members for their protests are patient and coming this morning to our presentation. i would remind members that we stand suspended until 1445 and of members could return promptly at 1445.

on wall street. it led to the dodd-frank bill that the president signed into law. >> there will be no more tax-funded bailouts. period. >> years of spending under both parties add up and the debt ceiling talks of 2011 led to a budget attend off between democrats and republicans who took back control of the house of representatives in the midterms. >> is there a risk the united states could lose their aaa rating? yes-or-no. >> no risk. >> the debt ceiling was raised in august the political fight in the spot lighted on the deficit and debt problems less s&p to downgrade the u.s. credit rating for the first time in history. >> geithner steered the major economic moves in the first term and now he is stepping down. president obama's pick to replace him is jack lew, who has established a close relationship with the president. lew is not is chummy with republicans on the hill after the debt ceiling negotiation back in 2011. for that reason and others, his confirmation hearing could be bumpy. if confirmed, he will be dealing with the top issue in this second term, how to get the economy moving an
worker. and my daughter in law on the left. my number three granddaughter, 9 number two granddaughter, nine no. 4 granddaughter -- my number two granddaughters, my no. 4 granddaughter, my oldest granddaughter who is a freshman in college now, naomi. and my third son. i told my daughter when she married, if you change your mind, i'm keeping him. [laughter] i'm very proud of them although i would be happy to claim as my this is a family affair. kids, grandkids, moms, dads. you all get it. you get what it is so important today. we still have 68,000 troops in harm's way in some of the most godforsaken territory in the world. one of the things that you all know -- they are not looking for anything. but knowing that you remember. that we back home remember, we know what is going on. this is an important piece of the equation. another important piece as they started the organization, their families, -- [indiscernible] fighting these two wars. thank god we ended one in iraq and we are ending the second one as well. 99% of the nation owes them a debt for what they are doing. there is a great p
and told his story. phillip congatonda went to law school and graduated hastings law school but never actually practiced law. he became the first chronicler of the japanese american experience and is credited with broadening the japanese -- broadening the definition of theater by bringing jap needs american stories to stages all across the country. he has collaborated with the most diverse american theater venues, from large mainstream houses to the most experimental venues to african american ethnic cally specific theaters reaching extraordinarily diverse audiences. from here to japan, his acclaimed sisters, maximoto premiered in 2005. in the last couple years he worked with camposanto on a fist of roses on male violence and an orchestral composition. many of his plays are collected in month more cherry blossoms published by washington press. among his awards are the civil liberties public education fund and lila wallace reader's digest award. phillip is also a respected independent film maker whose film recently premiered at sundance, but we're here to talk about his upcoming produc
brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> in making those comments, obama became the first u.s. president ever to use the word "gay" in an inaugural address. he also give a nod to voting rights, immigration reform and his recent push for gun control. >> our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. [applause] our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as the land of opportunity. until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our work force instead of expelled from our country. our journey is not complete until all our children from the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the quiet lanes of newtown know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm. >> president obama also used his address to hint at a more forceful engagement on climate change than in his first term, calling the

speaking-- urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. >> suarez: additionally, the obama plan calls for congress to order background checks for all gun sales, ending the so-called "gun show loophole." and it seeks stiffer penalties for people who sell guns to criminals. all told, the plan would cost some $500 million. and president obama said, "it's going to take some heavy political lifting." >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty, not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. and behind the scenes they'll do everything they can to block any common-sense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever. >> suarez: even before the president spoke, david keene, head of the national rifle association, dismissed the plan, in an interview with judy woodruff last night on "the newshour."
a new law. >>> a limit on the size of magazine clips. the president wants legislation to limit clips to ten bullets. something that would have reduced, perhaps, the number killed in the aurora, colorado movie theater massacre. >>> and then there is the president's most important push. and that's for universal background checks. this is probably the thing that has the best chance of getting through congress. has the support of some gun rights advocates. and might, just might, get bipartisan support. universal background checks could have prevented the columbine high school gunman from buying an assault weapon from a private seller who had bought it at a gun show. the president also proposed clearing the way for schools who want armed guards to get them. but he made just a passing reference to violent video games calling for research on their effects. and there was not a single mention of hollywood, violence, television or movies. president obama knows the only way anything meaningful will get done, though, on guns is if gun control advocates are able to tap into public emotion. frustr
republican governors, some of the worst laws being passed now to punish women and to deny access to reproductive health care. >> it's unbelievable. let me bring in my epic politics man because i want to know whether or not this will ever be a winning strategy for republicans. >> what kathy is saying is true. when you look back at what ronald reagan did and the affect he had on later generations on republicans, it was almost as if they wanted to adopt his doctrine going forward. it worked for a while. even today we see a meeting in williamsburg, virginia, talking about changing their messaging. if wasn't worth talking about rape. they're starting to learn that it's resonating with a few people in a specific party. if they see repeated losses at the ballot box that's all they care about and that's what it comes down to. >> hastings, let me play devil's advocate. sometimes we can live in our own progressive bubble and maybe we're not living to people who are making reasonable arguments that are pro-life. do you think there are individuals who are genuinely pro-life and genuinely car
the country to oppose the white house effort to reform the nation's gun laws. at demonstrations in pennsylvania and ohio, gun owners pilloried calls for stricter gun control. >> no law put on law abiding citizens has ever deterred crime. they're going to take my gun so i can get shot. >> my thoughts is, tell the leftwing liberal idiots in washington to leave our guns alone. we're not hurting anything. it is the criminals. deal with the criminals, not the law abiding citizens. >> the pro-gun rallies also coincided with a series of nationwide gun shows where at least five people were wounded when their firearms accidentally went off. in north carolina, three people were injured when a shotgun accidentally fired as its owner removed it from its case. another gun owner accidentally shot himself in indianapolis, while an ohio a gun show attendee was injured by stray bullet. president obama is set to publicly take the oath of office today at his second term inauguration in washington. obama gathered with his family sunday in the blue room of the white house to privately recite the 35-
